Decision Making Process

The Office of Graduate Studies collects the required University admission documents (departments collect program specific admissions document i.e. portfolio, GRE/GMAT test scores, etc.) and distributes student application information to each academic department for assessment and recommendation.

Once the academic department makes a decision, they recommend admission or refusal to the Office of Graduate Studies. The Office of Graduate Studies verifies the departmental assessment, creates and sends the official offer of admission/refusal letter to the applicant and receives the applicant's decision to accept or refuse the offer of admission. For information about why you may have been refused admission, please contact the academic department directly.

The Office of Graduate Studies maintains the student's record and facilitates the collection of outstanding/receipt of documents (as outlined in a conditional offer of admission) and assists students with the registration process.
